The other day, I bought a set of Beinfang Watercolor Brush Pens. When I got them home, I discovered that they are very similar in construction to my waterbrushes.

I like the Beinfang Watercolor Brushes, but they are expensive. I believe they are refillable, but I can't find a source for paint.

Then I found liquid watercolor for use in schools. This stuff looks like it would work. It's inexpensive, but heavy and shipping would more than double the price.

So I looked for a solution closer to home.

I squeezed some cheap tube watercolor paint into the barrel of one of my watercolor brushes, filled the brsh with water and gave it a good shake. Yes, the mixture flowed out of the brush! The cheap watercolor paint didn't stay vibrant when mixed with that much water, but I will continue to experiment with adding more paint.

Have I mentioned that I often spend more time experimenting than I do creating art. It should be fun, right? Experimenting is fun for me.

Am I alone in my experimental pursuits?
